Jennnifer Lopez and Wisin y Yandel, A Collaboration To Get Excited About!
I don’t know about everyone else, but when artists start collaborating, I get super emocianada (NOT excitada, thanks for clearing that up for me, La Roja!). There is just something about having one artist that you love get together with another artist that you love and creating an awesome musical baby together! (Maybe I took that metaphor too far?). Perhaps, this partially explains my sometimes irrational affection for Pitbull, el Rey of collaborations (It’s probably easier to count the music he has not been featured on rather than those he has…). ¿Quien sabe?
Anyway, the most recently announced collab on the street, that’s got this gringa in a tizzy, is the upcoming release of two songs from Jennifer Lopez and Wisin y Yandel. According to Latina.com, they’ve already started recording (so it’s not just a rumor!), and one of the tracks will be featured on WyY’s upcoming album, “Los Lideres” and the other track will be included on JLo’s upcoming greatest hits. This is very good news.
En serio, I will listen to just about anything, or at a minimum I will give anything a shot. But there are a select few artists that have permanent positions on my iPod playlists. Yes claro, Pitbull, but obviously JLo and WyY are at the top of my list. JLo’s empowering “Que hiciste” is probably one of my first favorite all-Spanish songs. And I will never, ever, not have WyY’s “Rakata” on my running play list. This duo and JLo have been a part of my musical interaction with Latino culture since the very beginning, and I can’t wait to hear what they’ve come up with together!
